Re: [seul-edu] Mail Filters
I use John Hardin's procmail filters to solve the ms virus/worm/other
horrible thing problem.

still the default on RedHat installs dont't know about others. In any
case procmail could be installed. the filters work very well.
A list of extensions know to carry email "disease" are mangled before
